Recycle Your Take-Home Crafts and Activities

I'm not even going to bother starting this post off with another apology. I guess you can just expect my posts to be a bit fewer and farther between. Especially as my due date creeps closer and closer.

Continuing with our Earth Day theme we've got going, I want to encourage you to be recycling your child's crafts that they bring home. whether it's a Literacy Launchpad activity or a project from school. It's obvious that you can't keep everything your child brings home, no matter how much you want to. If there's a particular project they made that you want to remember, take a photo of it, then toss the project itself into your recycling bin (you do have a recycling bin, right?).

I've been trying to make an effort to reduce the amount of non-recyclable materials I use in our Literacy Launchpad activities. You'll notice that the "Three Billy Goats Gruff" magnets from this week were sent home in a paper pocket instead of a plastic baggie. So once those magnets make it safely onto your fridge, make sure you recycle that paper pocket.
